In 1932, Mr. Richard Glaesser decided to become an independent distributor in Seiffen. His early assortment consisted of semi-luxury items such as coffee, tea, cocoa, tobacco, and alcohol, and then in 1934, wooden figures made in Seiffen were added. At the end of the 1940s, the company added items from its production and quickly found its identity. In the first years after World War II, items such as chests, quill boxes, and buttons were very popular. After that, traditional Christmas decorations from Seiffen gained importance.
Mr. Glaesser paid particular attention that his figures have a friendly appearance, be of the highest quality but remain affordable. So naturally, everything was based on typical Seiffen wood-turned figures. Figures from the Christmas story, fairy tales, and miners and angels from our mining traditions were used on Christmas pyramids and candle holders.
The first smoker was developed around 1850 in Heidelberg. At first, dough served as material. Then, mostly figures of everyday life were used as a motif. Nowadays also Santa Claus and other modern motives are manufactured. Available are salesmen, bakers, foresters, miners, chimney sweepers, standing smokers, edge stools smokers, large smokers, small smokers, and so on. Woodturning is the primary technique that is used to produce a smoker.
